I hope everyone is having a great summer. I wanted to provide you all with our quarterly philanthropic update. Please take a few minutes to update yourself on what we've accomplished over the last few months and our call to actions.
GBS: MLB Scholarships
MLB provided two scholarships worth $2,500 each to Stavros Lahanis (U of I) and Cici Zhang, pictured here: Both students are children of immigrants and will be the first in their families to attend college.
Titan's Helping Titans
MLB donated $3,800 towards purchasing the school supplies to all 150 students in need. Yesterday a group of volunteer students and parents go together and assembled these backpacks. This was only achievable because of MLB's generous donation. In previous years they simply had a closet where students would go and take what they need when they needed it. They have never had everything provided in a backpack day one of the school year.
Special thanks to Pat Garvey and Garvey Office Supplies. The materials were provided at cost and at a reduced rate due to the volume. In the past the same purchase at Staples by one of the THT volunteers would've cost $6K+.
